Memorial Day: A day of Rememberance

It is a Veteran, not a preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.

It is a Veteran, not a reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.

It is a Veteran, not a poet, that has given us a freedom of speech.

It is a Veteran, not a campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to assemble.

It is a Veteran, not a lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is a Veteran, not a politician, who has given us the right to vote.

It is the Veteran who salutes the flag.

It is the Veteran who serves under the flag.
                                                                                  
I do not know who wrote these words. They came to me through email. I felt the need to share.

May we all take the time to bow our heads and give thanks and remembrance to all who gave their lives so that we can enjoy our family and homeland.

Tell a serviceman thank you for their service, today and every day you see one.
